Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 4 April 2021
Some excellent programmes coming up in April.
Sunday 18th April
Sacred and secular love is always a most intriguing topic in any case, and the early eras of music prove to be a fertile ground for crossovers between the pious and the profane. Vlad explores the twin sides of musical expression of love and other important universal topics, as explored by Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque composers.
Music by Monteverdi, Abelard, D'India, Carissimi, and more will serve up evidence that the holy and the heathen did often meet and in fact, lovingly intertwine. Plus, a new release from The Sixteen and Harry Christophers on the Coro label: "Good Night, Beloved" explores music which offers repose and respite from the demands of early life.
